So while the FVC Fox-leading Whip-Purs lost to Prairie Ridge 12-7 in nine innings in a league crossover Friday in Hampshire, Stepek’s postgame mood remained positive.

  • Jacobs’ Riedel has high hopes for state Feb 20, 2014 10:26 PM
    Jacobs girls gymnast Allison Riedel did not have a 2012-2013 season to remember. Riedel suffered a Lisfranc injury at last year’s Fremd sectional that prevented her from competing in the state finals last year. “Basically I broke eight to 15 bones in my foot,” she said. “The main bone supporting my arch broke and the bones connected to the arch folded in. I had two surgeries and two wires and two screws put in. It was not a good injury. It was really hard watching the state meet last year knowing I should have been competing. The injury has only made me that much stronger of a gymnast.”
